Preserving Parks Today

We are a non-profit charitable organization that focuses on the completion and the full appreciation of our National Parks by identifying key land acquisition and preservation projects and connecting kids to these unique and iconic places. NPT supports the development of public and private partnerships to acquire lands that protect our national parks. In the 35 years since NPT was established, it has carried out its preservation mission by completing more than 60 land acquisition, restoration, and mitigation projects for more than 30,000 acres in 30 states and 1 U.S. Territory and Washington, D.C. including 48 National Park Service projects in 42 National Park Service Units, 3 U.S. Forest Service projects, 3 National Wildlife Refuge projects and 9 state and local park projects.
